Belli Challenge #157 - Thankful/Gratitude

Good morning everyone and Happy Thanksgiving to those who are celebrating tomorrow.
This is the first of 2 posts for me today....I've been busy!

We have a new challenge starting at the Belli Challenge 
and this time the theme Darsie has chosen is
Thankful/Grateful

I've coloured a digi from ADFD called Holding a Flower.
I must confess...I've had her for a few months but this is the first time she's been coloured.
I hope you like the result.

I added a raffia ribbon and topped it with a black stitched ribbon from Michaels.
I pulled out my Spellbinders Beaded Circles, cut and dry embossed them, then added a bit of Versamark to the beads.   The button is from an old BG set tied with some very old Irish linen thread from my dear Mom's sewing box.  She was a great crafter and loved to sew.   I have not inherited that gene....it's all I can do to sew a straight line on my cards.  The sentiment was added in word.  I've used Glamour Dust on her wings and she has been coloured with Copics.

Here is a closeup of this cutie.



I expect to enter the following challenges:
My Sheri Crafts Challenge #98 - Give Thanks
Di's Digi Designs - Show us those Fall Colours
ADFD Challenge #57 -  Autumn colors
